It's computer science.
  * IEEE TC accepts LaTeX, but converts the file into their own
    format, which does not support PS/PDF figures (only bitmap)
    and does not support \mathbb fonts.
  * Computing in Science & Engineering (CiSE) also accepts LaTeX,
    but our submitted article was converted (or manually copied,
    which would explain some mistakes that have been introduced)
    into MS Word by the publisher, who gave the MS Word file back
    to us for checking.
